@cfr Well, it's comment in the non-site sense of the word. :) I hadn't noticed that the documentation was so minimal (not much for link clicking today...), so this is irony on your part. (I thought it was funny no matter). But maybe that's why people prefer the other packages...
 
cfr
12:36 AM
@AlanMunn I haven't tried to use it, so I'm not sure. It may simply be that 3 pages is sufficient. Not every package needs 1000+ manual, I hope! And, after all, so far the documentation for this package has fully satisfied my documentation needs with respect to it. I don't think it is supposed to be enormously fancy. Basically, I think it is a framework into which you can slot more-or-less fancy stuff. By default, simple (\fbox, \colorbox); optionally fancier (\tikz).

@HenriMenke I've been away for a few days, trying your update now.
! You can't use `\Umathchar"4"0"28' after \the.
<recently read> \lparen
Is there a reference where I can look up what character this is?
(This would make debugging easier.)
If I ignore the error, it seems to produce a good result, in particular the kerning of (j is fixed! But I have tens of these errors on every page...
 
7:06 AM
@Paulo A song by Enrique that was ok. I heard it just once now, let's wait till the rest of the day is over and the song was played 20 times. :-)

@Earthliŋ You can find these numbers in the document »Every symbol (most symbols) defined by unicode-math«. You find it via texdoc unimath-symbols.
@Earthliŋ I have no idea where this error arises and with a MWE there is nothing I can do about it.
 
9:22 AM
@Johannes_B I heard that Ke$ha doesn't use TeX and friends.
 
@PauloCereda Why not? She's so rich, she should have enough $ to match all the missing ones.
 
@HenriMenke ooh
She could use some catcodes. :)
 
9:48 AM
In other news, Pokémon Go is far below my expectations, so I uninstalled it from my phone.
I need to find other ways of procrastination. :)
 
@PauloCereda The Olympic Games?
 
@egreg Oh no, I don't want to get too much involved. :) I am rooting against them. :)
I love Red Dwarf! :)
I toast, therefore I am
:D
 
10:07 AM
@PauloCereda How about a croissant?
 
@JosephWright ooh :)
@Joseph: I blame Andrew Stacey for introducing me to this awesome series. :)

11:17 AM
My dad asked me about this Pokémon Go. :)
 
11:33 AM
English language question: proper nouns (like Lebesgue in the Lebesgue integral), hyphernation not allowed?
 
12:10 PM
@daleif -- hyphenation discouraged, but allowed if there is no other reasonable alternative. but that's not a great example. the only possibility is "Le-besgue"; the hyphenation would best follow the pattern of the original language, unless it's really too "foreign" to english patterns. (i can't think of an example of that just now, but you can look at the last couple of pages of the tugboat hyphenation exception list, tb0hyf.pdf on ctan, for examples of names.)
 
12:43 PM
@barbarabeeton Thanks, I found something similar in one of my style manuals. It is not usually something that I go after when editing. In this case a PhD student asked, she's finishing her thesis.
 
1:11 PM
Joseph Wright has added an event to this room's schedule.
 
1:49 PM
@daleif ooh finishing thesis...
@DavidCarlisle ^^
 
2:37 PM
@PauloCereda One needs to start writing it in order to arrive at the finishing stage.
 
@cfr: I added a Python command to generate the page interval. :)
 
3:29 PM
@yo': Tom! <3
 
Hey guys! Could you help me with a question on LaTeX table formatting?
 
3:53 PM
@Adeetya Sure!
 
cfr
4:05 PM
@PauloCereda You should answer and claim the points!
@HenriMenke An MWE always makes things worse ;).
 
@cfr I actually jus provided the range. In fact, I believe the OP wants a specific page numbering booklet, similar to something I use (I generate booklets in a way I can simply fold the pages, so the page interval is different).
@SamWhited: Hi, long time no see! Welcome back! <3

Q: \scriptstyle affects \overline

Symbol 1The following code % !TEX program = XeLaTeX \documentclass{article} \usepackage{unicode-math,mathtools} \begin{document} $\overline{A}\overline{A}\mathrlap{A}$ \end{document} gives Going deeper Through some experiments, I found that mathtools and \mathclap are not to blame. % !TE...

Why is XeTeX so broken?
 
@HenriMenke I blame @DavidCarlisle. :)
 
@HenriMenke :(
 
\input luaotfload.sty
\font\lm="Latin Modern Math:script=math" at 10pt
\textfont0=\lm \fam0
$A$
\bye
Also, why is my math font not loaded?
@PauloCereda Classic!
 
@HenriMenke I expect a witty reply regarding my thesis.. :)
 
@PauloCereda Didn't you go to SP to see our prime minister? :)
@HenriMenke A doesn't use \fam0 and at the beginning of a formula, \fam is implicitly set to –1.
 
4:38 PM
@egreg Unfortunately, this changed nothing.
 
\input luaotfload.sty
\font\lm="STIX Math:script=math" at 10pt
\textfont1=\lm
$A$
\bye
@HenriMenke ^^^^
The mathcode of A makes TeX choose family 1.
 
@egreg But now A is upright instead of math italic.
 
@HenriMenke Of course, what did you expect without changing the math code?
 
@JosephWright: I flagged a number of comments, as the conversation really wasn't all that constructive.
 
@Werner Noted
 
4:44 PM
@HenriMenke You need to change the math code
\input luaotfload.sty
\font\lm="STIX Math:script=math" at 10pt
\textfont0=\lm
\Umathcode`A="0 "0 "1D434
$A$
\bye
 
@JosephWright If he was here, I would have continued the discussion, but the comment thread of that question is not the right place for it.
 
@egreg Is there something tabulated? Or is it buried deep inside the unicode-math package?
 
@HenriMenke Check unicode-math-table.tex
 
MY NEW DUCKS ARRIVED
@egreg ooh
 
@PauloCereda Yeah :-)
 
4:54 PM
@PauloCereda QUACKKKKK!
 
@JosephWright There's a "British pack". :)
 
@PauloCereda Photos, please!
 
@egreg Sure thing!
 
@PauloCereda NEW ducks?
 
cfr
@PauloCereda I do this for A5 booklets, but then the calculations are done by pdfpages automatically.
 
5:00 PM
@cfr ooh cool
@Werner YES

@egreg, @JosephWright, @cfr, @Werner ^^ :)
@Johannes_B, @AlanMunn, @barbarabeeton, @UlrikeFischer ^^
 
@PauloCereda Hmmm, so someone is making a fortune (from you...) by painting rubber duckies. No wonder your credit card support here on TeX.SE seems to fall short.
 
@Werner Exactly! :)
 
5:19 PM
@DavidCarlisle I've rolled back the edit I made to your answer about gb4e since the solution doesn't work for linguex after all. (It works in the simple example but not in slightly more complex ones.) tex.stackexchange.com/q/209228/2693
 
6:00 PM
@PauloCereda Why do all the ducks have a U on their chest?
 
@AlanMunn I... I don't know!
 
@PauloCereda Maybe they're carrying a message about your thesis... unwritten.
 
@AlanMunn o.O
 
@PauloCereda <3
 
@AlanMunn <3

Oops, and back again; hi (and thanks!) @PauloCereda
 
@SamWhited Hi! <3

9:02 PM
@PauloCereda Words fail me ...
 
oh, hey, I don't know if anyone here is a big emacs/orgmode fan, but I just created a room just for that on the emacs site (my main experience is using it to export talks into beamer) so here's the linky: chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/43541/emacs-orgmode
 
@cfr in a good way? :)
@AaronHall emacs booooo
:)
 
emacs yay!!
what text editor do you use?
 
Dad is watching TV and he said, "Get your smartphone and capture one of those Pokémanz so I can scare the cat..."
 
Rubber ducky he's the one...
 
9:16 PM
I think dad hasn't got the gist of the game yet.
@AaronHall Think of editor wars. :)
 
Have you seen spacemacs? spacemacs.org
> The best editor is neither Emacs nor Vim, it's Emacs and Vim!
 
@AaronHall Yes, I do. :) I don't use emacs, but here it is.
 
Yay!
 
@PauloCereda You'd like my friend Amanda!
 
@JosephWright What did she do? :)
 
9:20 PM
@PauloCereda Currently catch all the pokemanz
@PauloCereda She's just trained as a teacher and is 'free' until term starts
 
@JosephWright ooh
@JosephWright how nice!
@Joseph: ask Amanda which team she picked. :)
 
@PauloCereda I'm told a 'parasect' is good to catch
 
@JosephWright ooh it's the evolved version of a Paras. :) I had a Zubat, which is a wacky bat. :)
Left is Paras, right is Parasect.
Jul 20 at 20:27, by David Carlisle
@PauloCereda don't remember, it was sat on my keyboard at work so i threw a ball thing and put the phone back in my pocket.... Of course at school if you don't own a phone and have caught (or claimed to have caught) thousands of the things, you are a social outcast
@JosephWright: @David is into Pokemanz too. :)
 
@PauloCereda I'm sure
 
@PauloCereda well I think orgmode is Emacs's killer app - people are really liking it. I wouldn't be using Emacs if it weren't for orgmode.
 
9:28 PM
@AaronHall Little I know about orgmode, but people say it's nice. :)
 
Think about it: plus vim needs a good operating system and language interface.
and I'm using orgmode for export to LaTeX!
 
10:19 PM
@JavierGarcía-Salcedo Hi Javier, did you manage to get biber and biblatex working?
 
 
1 hour later…
yo'
11:20 PM
@PauloCereda Paulo! :)
